The students who are involved with Burk Student Council must meet high academic criteria, demonstrate good character, and have their peers’ approval. The Student Council is involved in many activities and events to help the school and community throughout the year. Last year, Burk Student Council sponsored a food drive, ran “Hats On Day” to benefit the Children’s Cancer Society, collected pennies for patients, raised money for the school’s Helping Hands Christmas tree, and offered Candy Grams and a Spirit Store for the students. We are very proud of these present and future leaders.
Bobcats stay fit and have fun!

Bobcat 3rd/4th Grade Chorus
Boys and girls in grades three and four are invited to participate in the Burk Elementary Chorus.

Specific dates are posted on Mrs. Hamilton’s Teacher Page “Music Calendar”.
